  1. Steering problem serious with low speed wobble

    Problems & Issues
    We have an 05 with about 130K on it. The steering wheel has recently begun to wobble at low speeds around 20MPH and then goes away as speed increases. More seriously though is the car's pulling on acceleration. When driving in the Arkansas mountains around the bends at reasonable speeds, the...
  2. Lifting Gen 3 with Eibach springs - handling, fuel consumption, etc.

    2007-2011 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 3)
    Hi guys. I am thinking of doing a small lift to my CRV. The main reason is that I like to look of lifted SUV's + it makes me happy to know that my car is just a little bit different from other/stock cars. Anyhow - I am thinking of using new Eibach springs which are intended especially for this...
  3. Lowering Springs or Coilovers?

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    I know this has probably been discussed on here before but I'm too lazy to look it up and honestly, I'd rather have a fresh thread about it anyways. I am the owner of a 3rd gen CRV and I am going to be upgrading the suspension on it. I have been told to do lowering springs by some people, while...
  4. Better Handling for 05/06 Gen 2.5

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    So after some thought I think after tax season I'll be putting some money towards better handling/reduced body roll on the crv. The reason for this was an accident I was in last February where I almost did in fact roll over, had it not been for the snow bank that stopped me from doing so. Did...

  6. handling

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    hello people; How would you discribe how a V handles? I've only owned RWD cars and that's what I know but driving a new Impressa I thought the steering was heavy, a FWD Mazda was nimble but I didn't really drive it like I've owned it a while. Now the V seems predictable but I havn't taken it to...
  7. Tire pressure and tire thread depth

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Hi, Recently, I had to change one tire on my CRV. I made sure to change the tire to OEM one. But now, all three tires the vehicle came with stand at depth of 7 whereas the new one is standing at 9. I would like to know if I have to lower the tire pressure on new one to make it at the same...
  8. Yokohama Avid Envigor snow handling

    Tires, Wheels and Suspensions
    Tire Rack rates the Yoko Avid Envigor well in all categories including winter handling, but I noticed survey results are based on very low miles, and most of those miles were probably in the summer months since the tire debut in March 2010. Does anyone have any recent real world snow experience...
  9. poor handling in snow

    Problems & Issues
    My wife has complained each year about her 08 CRV in the snow. We have both been driving in the snow in Ohio for over 30 years and manage fine in our other front wheel drive cars. But this CRV is horrible in the snow!! It's not AWD but the VSA flashes on any slushy spot and traction and...
  10. Good Handling in Panic Maneuvers

    Miscellaneous / General CR-V Discussions
    I was traveling close to 70 mph in the center lane of I-75 on my way to work this morning (with two additional lanes merging in on the right), when I noticed cars and trucks driving erratically just ahead of me. One pickup truck shot across three lanes of traffic and ended up in the median, but...
